Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism Ben Kweller - On My Way

A donut place on 13th St. in Omaha, some blocks North of Sokol Auditorium. Self-serve coffee 45 cents a cup, fresh donuts a quarter. Rapid fire service, old school analog cash register with heavy cha-ching noises. Pictures of cats and dogs on the walls.

Everything You Think You Know is Wrong moments:

I think my favourite book is William Blake's Complete Writings - the Oxford Standard Authors edition. I'm always fascinated by his life, and the incongruity of someone so visionary emerging in a place like London in the 18th Century. I've been writing an album based on his work for the past 40 years and some day I'm going to finish it.
